We have begun to do some story telling in literacy class. Its exciting and rewarding to see the students (who can't read or write independently) develop their own stories. We started by doing number facts about ourselves for example; age, number in family, pets . We presented these like a mind map with added pictures and keywords.Stories were then told using the number facts mind map as a prompt.
This week we used an old resource
Living our Lives -Ten stories about the lives of adults with a learning disability with CD- which you may be able to order in the publications section (it didn't work for me!)
I was very interested to come across the website
They have examples of how to develop story telling with children and adults with severe communication difficulties : Storysharing
and a story/poem resource to download Coleridge resource
